elephant cage
 n.— «You probably wouldn’t expect to find an elephant cage on an air base, but Elmendorf Air Base in Alaska has something like one—although there are no elephants in this cage. This is, in fact, a “AN/FLR-9 Circularly Disposed Antenna Array” (CDAA).» —by James Turnbull, Alex Turnbull Off the Map: The Most Amazing Sights on Earth as Seen by Satellite Nov. 1, 2006.
